Radio Revival

You spend a lot of time drinking sherry, smoking a pipe, and ordering every foreign film ever reissued by the Criterion Collection — La Jetée, Jules & Jim, The Naked Kiss, Yojimbo — during which you dream up the strange adventure that will carry you away from Miami and into the arms of Elsa, a beautiful French-Moroccan girl who recites entire chapters of Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past from memory while practicing forbidden forms of karate. If only you knew that this Saturday night, in the middle of this swampy outpost half-consumed by the Atlantic Ocean, a free live radio show was being recorded in an independent record store, and that in ten minutes you and your mid-’90s Volvo 240 could be there. Pure fiction, you say? Nay, sir — Pure Imagination.

Conjured from the mind of former UM DJ Matt Gajewski, PI combines literary swarthiness with musical noir in a conversation cocktail that will make you forget all about your crush on Ira Glass.
